in governor romney's favor. >> almost 6 out of 10 americans think that obama will take this debate, romney goes in as under dog with low expectations, if he does well, he will exceed those expectations. i think he has a good chance of winning this debate. lou: what about, you made it clear, you are not overly impressed with the mr. obama's capabilities, he is no bill clinton in that regard. hollywood will be prompter-free. >> we've seen obama say there are 57 states in the union, then he goes, some kind of -- takes over his face, and it looks like he is caught in the lights like a deer. when he does not hit the ball in the sweet spot, he starts to crumble a little bit. because, the facade is so important to him. lou: you think that --- who is more gaffe prone? who has do you think the greater likelihood of committing, well significant mistake. >> i am sure romney does not offer $10,000 bet. lou: i remember governor perry's face. >> obama will have to think how many books do i have to sell to make $10,000. lou: did you see the pictures, sitting with a big wad of cash in his hand, president
obama during this debate and loses his cool. that's just who the guy is, i think. susan, did governor chris christie think he was helping mitt romney by saying that the debate would just be turning this race upside down? what do you think? >> i think chris christie was just being chris christie. while you're correct, a lot of people were dampening expectations, chris said what a lot of people are hoping and thinking. mitt romney delivers a vision with some specifics that people can grab on to and can turn this race around. the fact is things flip-flopped very, very quickly in the last two or three weeks. they can go back the other way. only if romney performs well. >> chris kofinis, do you believe that romney can turn this around as many months as he's had, one misstep after another, and by a wide margin, americans think president obama is going to win this debate and has the upper hand. what about expectations and what about the possibility of romney turning this around? what do you think? >> well, that's clearly their strategy. you have to love governor christie for raising expectat

weeks for president obama and governor romney? >> well, president obama's got a few things that can go wrong. some of them are political in terms of foreign policy. economically his biggest issue is if something goes wrong between israel or iran ratchets it up, oil prices go up, that always makes people feel very bad about the economy even if it's tied to something specific. there are two jobs reports to come out. one next friday and one five days before the election. those could indicate something the president doesn't like. here's the thing, bottom line right now the economy is feeling good. as you know it's still polling as the number one election issue. if it keeps on track, the republicans are going to have to watch their messaging about how this is a bad economy because many americans are not actually feeling it's worse than it was four years ago. >> and early october when jobs numbers, unemployment rate and also in early november before the election, the second one, still got those two jobs reports awaiting all of us. thanks, ali, very much. a severe breach of royal protocol for

and punch for punch. it's it's 2008 rope-a-dope obama that dominated the debates back then governor romney has to be careful not to punch himself out early or commit any unforced errors. clearly articulate the choice between himself and president obama where he would take the country and where the president would here is ryan. >> he needs to give the american people the choice we are offering. that's what we are doing. we owe the country a very clear choice of a different future. we can either have a dynamic growing economy that produces opportunity or we can have a stagnant economy that fosters dependency. >> and this debate format is going to be different for the governor as well. out of 23 debates he has never, shep, had a one-on-one like he will on wednesday. >> shepard: while they are trying to lower expectations here some surrogates and some aren't. >> exactly. things are going pretty well in the expectations game. right up until governor chris christie of new jersey went on the air and hit mitt romney's expectation right out of the ballpark. listen to this. wednesday night the resta

to the effect of barack obama and governor john kasic. housing starts have gotten better and de-leveraging process which is households paying down their debts has happened quite in an orderly fashion. i think there's more kind of pent up economic optimism among voters than you would necessarily deduce from the top line numbers. >> push you on the optimism. stipulate what you just described is a big part of the shift but not 100%. >> yeah. >> there's another question here and you've written about this where we talk about conservatives and ep stemmic closure, the idea you don't listen any more to certain facts you don't agree with and we've been talking about it on this show today, but not just conservatives. there may be this sort of exciting energy around the idea that we're improving that correlates with partisanship and the big new pew numbers out last week and in a big "new york times" article show that there's now a gap from republicans to democrats, and their view of the economy of over 35 points, which and this is the big part, which about a year ago, was even. see on the

of respect that you heard in art.ey'soice and h peoe and guess what? he's the guy that the obama campaign is going to send out to talk to that 47% and remind them why they should be voting for president obama rather than governor romney. i agree with e.j., it was a decent speech fr governor romney. yst urinro's got eug >> it's interesting that on the day mitt romney was apairing at bill clinton's global initiative, bill clinton did more anti-romney media in one day than he has done since the convention hes hen thisorni. >> we know what governor romney says, which is that his proposal for dealing with the debt is first to make it bigger by adopting another round of tax cuts. hetso defer until after the election saying what the specifics are. i think that ought to be a little bit of a red flag. mp yusntlif yore the obama intio go on and on. >> he's continuing his role as a math teacher, which he is pretty good at. you know what struck me though? en clinton was speaking earlier. thrnnctaed which has an ugly name, was one of the really good deeds of the clinton administration. he really boost
in the primaries in the last year. >> barack obama is an effective debater. >> governor romney has been practicing for months. i think the invasion of normandy took less preparation than he is putting into the debates. >> hasn't had a debate against a democrat in over ten years i guess it would be probably 2002. >> i have never been in a presidential debate like this, it will be a new experience. >> is your head spinning? expectations came at a fevered pitch. yesterday afternoon we got memos. first one was a memo from romney senior adviser beth myers that couldn't stop praising the president. president obama is a universely aclaimed public speaker. voters already believe by a 25 point margin that president obama is likely to do a better job in the debates, given president obama's natural gifts and extensive seasoning under the bright lights of the debate stage. this morning, the obama campaign countered with its memo. senior adviser david axelrod. we expect mitt romney to be prepared disciplined and aggressive debater. governor pawlenty said he is as good as it gets in debating. maybe this is why

medicare, though, i got to say. you quote obama campaign manager jim messina saying "governor romney is a very skilled debater and the governor has the advantage." are you buying that? that the obama campaign and his supporters really believe that? >> you know, a little yes a little bit no. they point out historically that the challenger usually is viewed as having done better in the first debate. that's partly because there's a certain amount of elevation that happens just when you have the challenger on the same stage as the president. they're there as equals. and that is elevating for the challenger. having said that, i don't think that they are really prepared for defeat here. i think that they are sort of cranking that up as much as possible. >> okay. come see us again. thanks so much. >> you're welcome. >>> early voting in iowa. a live report on the turnout when "weekends with alex witt" returns. why should our wallets tell us what our favorite color is? every room deserves to look great. and every footstep should tell us we made the right decision. so when we can feel our way
is at stake in this first debate? athena jones takes a look. >> reporter: both the obama and romney campaigns are doing their best to lower expectations ahead of wednesday's debate. >> we have expected all along that governor romney will have a good night, he's prepared more than any candidate in history. >> president obama is a very gifted speaker. the man's been on the national stage for many years, he's an experienced debater, he's done these kinds of debates before, this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> romney -- the president was widely regarded as one of the most talented political communicators in modern history. myers even pointed to a cnbc poll. the obama camp likes to remind volters that the president hasn't had as much time to prepare for the debates because he's busy being commander in chief. when it comes to just how how much debates matter it depens. >> most often debates don't make that big a difference. very few candidates win an election with a debate, but many have lost an election with a debate. >> reporter: in 1980, between ronald reagan and jimmy carter. a
to a volunteer nevada yaeds, president obama made it sound like a college cram session minus the no doze and pizza. >> basically they're keeping me indoors all the time. it's a drag. they're making me do my homework. >> governor romney, however, may have twice the work load. he'll have two opponents on stage tomorrow, president obama and himself. eugene robinson write in "the washington post" -- it prompts to be an epic clash. mitt romney versus mitt romney. oh. and president obama will be there too. this conundrum of what we'll call the paradox of the mittens, dates back to 1994 when senator ted kennedy dropped this debate heat rock. >> on the question of the choice issue, i have supported the row v raid wade, i am pro choice, my opponent is multiple choice. >> so which bubble will the multiple choice candidate fill in on tomorrow night's test? which mitt will triumph on stage. even members of the conservative establishment aren't sure. bill o'reilly conceded mitt romney is a mystery man. >> people don't really know who mitt romney is. the pressure is on the governor. he has to come acr
trail today. governor romney hammering president obama about his reference to outbreaks of the middle east violence as bumps in the road. well, will the controversy impact the race or is the controversy itself just a bump in the road? joining us our political panel, abc news senior washington editor rick coastline, "washington post" national political correspondent karen tumulty, and bob kousack. rick, to? > >> i think this is a cliche he wants back. the romney campaign interpreted this as a reaction to the death of ambassador stevens. the response comes off insensitive, as unfeeling comes off as someone who isn't engaged in the particulars of what's going on. again, this isn't the phrase.to use as to what's going on. the romney campaign eager to talk about it in the days to come. >> in fact, this is a phrase that's gotten the president into trouble, has drawn a response from the romney campaign once before in a very different context. he was talking about bumps in the road in the economic recovery, and the romney campaign put together a very memorable ad where they had people standin
to the end zone? our pal ed rendell joins us. governor, can rom knney do anytg to turn this race around? >> number one, governor romney has to do a terrific debate performance, especially in the first debate. number two, he needs help. the obama campaign has to stumble or a current event that reflects badly on the president. i think the first is possibly. governor romney is a very good debater. he won almost all of the republican debates except south carolina. he's adept at debating and disciplined du disciplin disciplined debates and sounds like a president. he'll do well in the first debate. as far as the second thing happening, it's not likely. the obama campaign is doing a good job of staying safe of running out the clock. >> romney's fate is not totally in his hands at this point? >> i think so. the margin has widened enough so he can't make all that ground with a good debate performance. >> the candidates have duelling straig straight-to-camera ads out. >> president obama and i care about poor and middle class families. the difference is my policies will make things better for the
with the obama campaign manag manager. >> the governor has the advantage. do his supporters really believe that. >> some of these debate expectations are really getting comical m 78 -- so, yeah, that would be lowering expectations quite a bit to this sort of ridiculous degree. this is all about sort of getting us in the media to write that so-and-so did better than expectations and therefore one is therefore is going to have some kind of momentum coming out of this. mitt romney is having a lot of experience debating over the last year or so. president obama one of the best or rat fors in poll tics today, going through this exact stage, as the president debate approaches, he did this back in 2008, so i think both these guys are much better debaters than they're going to tell you over the next couple of days. i don't believe a lot of things coming out of the senior advisors mouths these days. >> i want to throw up quickly what the doctor advisor said to, what beth myers said to earlier. this was natural gifts and extensive seasoning under the bright lights of the debate stage, heralding president
. lou: much more on the obama administration's involving narrative, if you will, later, we take that up with the a-team. governor romney is a clear underdog right now, so why won't the liberal media call him just that? an underdog. could it be because voters love an underdog? we'll take a look at histories november surprises. the prints presses running over time. wall street loves it. the economy, apparently, needs it, and with the easy money, we couldn't poly did over the cliff, could we? wall street legends say, oh, wall street legends say, oh, yes, we would. with the spark cash card from capital one, olaf's pizza palace gets the most rewards of any small business crit card! pizza!!!!!
